All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (2)

  • Easy to dismiss as camp folly, but you really shouldn't.

    July 3, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Routine, somewhat distended development blunts impact of this British-made programmer.

    May 14, 2008 | Full Review…
  • The brilliant pre-Von Daniken anthropological theme of Kneale's script still guarantees interest.

    June 24, 2006 | Full Review…
  • All of its pseudo-scientific talk seemed to short-circuit the audience's interest -- in it and in themselves.

    May 21, 2005 | Full Review…
  • Unfortunately, the monsters themselves are expectedly rubbery, accompanied by dated special effects and cheap practical creature makeup.

    August 27, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • Kier grounds the film with his sober and serious presence.

Audience Reviews for Quatermass and the Pit (Five Million Years to Earth)(The Mind Benders)

    It's got more depth and action than films with ten times the budget.

    The film looks like one of Hammer's classier efforts and the horror is downplayed in favour of 'Doctor Who'-like sci-fi. It's got a good reputation but I didn't enjoy it as much as some of the simpler horror vehicles from the studio and missed the presence of Cushing and Lee. Not my favourite Hammer then but a good effort.

    A fun Hammer horror, with great if dodgy looking today practical effects, but isnt that always the case, what could be marsians are found buried in the london underground, and soon things go wrong, a tense if wooden first act, is nicely paced and a entertaining ending when it all comes to a head.

    A mystery arises when skeletons and a capsule made of almost indestructible metal are discovered in a subway excavation. Talky, sometimes intriguing horror masquerading as science fiction, with a memorably apocalyptic conclusion.
